I need to print a list on my Trello board from time to time. Is there a way to print a single list?
Also, could the board's background image be disabled for print? I need the cards' cover images shown, but the background image just wastes ink.
My current work around to this farcical situation is:
Right now, there isn't a way to print an individual ist, or to print card covers without also printing the board's background.
Because Trello's intended to be used primarily on the web, printing isn't something we're prioritizing right now, although it's true that there's room for improvement. That said, I'll pass your interest in these features on to our team for consideration!
PLEASE!!! Trello allows for printing of cards & boards - so why not lists also? I have a To Do Board that contains a list for each day of the week. Some days are particularly busy and it would be SO useful to print a quick list of those days for at-a-glance reference. While I love Trello's mobile app, there are those times when I just need a printed list to keep close by to help my brain stay on track! ;). I have to manually write out my list from Trello on those days.
Didn't work for me. Eleanor, did you have to do anything special? The first five cards in my list didn't print. There were a total of 12 cards in my list, more than will fit on a single page of letter-sized paper. Are you able to print more than a page? Not that I would really want all that paper anyway! Still not a solution for me. :(
If you have a long list, your default printer settings may not allow you to print the entire list on one page. If that is happening, spend some time adjusting your printer settings to see if you can fit everything on 1 page. Scale settings, Magnification settings, "Print multiple pages per sheet" - things like that can help you print to one page.
It seems that Eleanor has left the group. I admit that I was considering giving up on Trello for this particular feature/fault, until I figured out on my own the workaround of copying the list to a separate board that only contains this list. I may still abandon it, if this is representative. The jury is still out.
Meanwhile, I've been starting to learn the Trello API, and the existence of an API is a GREAT BIG plus for Trello in my book. If worst comes to worse, I may be able to write a script that queries for the names of my boards, lets me pick one, then gets that board's lists and lets me pick from that, the lets me print the list at least as basic text. But I really shouldn't have to.
BTW, I really don't like archiving things that I would rather delete. We have that choice for individual cards, but not for lists or boards. If there is ever a time when I might need look into the Archive for some reason, I don't want it cluttered with a multitude of copies of "To Do Today" for every time I printed out today's list. (I also don't like wasting the disk space, but that's not a major issue. I just like programs that can clean up after themselves. If I'm wasting another 2K minimum file size for every temporary list I create on a daily basis, three times a day, for a year, that's over 2 MB unrecoverable waste.)
